Cabinas Las Olas Review

Frequented mainly by surfers, this is a good option for anyone seeking easy beach access, relative solitude, and comfortable, if not fancy, lodging. The hotel's spacious glass-and-stone bungalows are scattered across a leafy property behind Playa Avellanas, which guests reach via an elevated boardwalk through a protected mangrove estuary. Each cabina has a queen bed and a single bed, high wooden ceiling, and covered terrace with a hammock. Six cabins now have air-conditioning, four do not, but high ceilings, a shady location, ceiling fans, and good cross ventilation keep the rooms cool at night. Solar panels provide hot water. Monkeys, iguanas, and other critters lurk in and around the extensive, forested grounds. The restaurant, under the shade of a giant Guanacaste tree, serves a selection of Costa Rican and Continental cuisine at reasonable prices ($$) for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There's also a game room with a Ping-Pong table and other games.
